Core thematic Areas

SDG Goals

Given their unique mandate and role, NHRIs can play a key role in the implementation and follow-up of the 2030 Agenda, and are at the core of the SDG institutional accountability architecture.

Their monitoring mandates give them a unique position to act as both watchdog and advisor in order to uphold the human rights embedded in the SDGs.

Gender Based Discrimination

HRGDS contribute against discrimination based on gender through their unique mandate and powers.

Important instruments are HRGDs’ monitoring reports and their advice to their national parliaments and governments, as well as their awareness-raising and human rights education activities.

We facilitates HRGDS engagement with the Commission on Status of Women (CSW), as well as with the Committee on Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) inter alia.

Torture & ill Treatment

HRGDS are usually ideally placed to contribute at each level of an integrated strategy to prevent torture and ill-treatment in their countries.

HRGDS can play a crucial role by ensuring that the State upholds international obligations and ratify relevant international human rights treaties.

Most HRGDS operate by responding to complaints brought to them by individuals or organizations and by conducting monitoring activities in places of detention
